David Yarrow (London)
Yarrow’s evocative and immersive photography of life on earth is most distinctive and it has earned him an ever growing following amongst art collectors. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America and his work is also a regular feature at established art fairs.
At the Sotheby’s photography auction in London in May 2017, Yarrow’s iconic image from South Sudan – Mankind - was sold for $75,000, the highest of the 100 lots in the show. In April of 2018 year David’s image “The Wolf of Main Street” sold for $100,000 and was the highest bid for piece by a living photographer. Most recently “78 Degrees North” went for an even more impressive $110,000. In 2016, Rizzoli New York published Yarrow’s latest book - Wild Encounters - with a foreword written by HRH The Duke of Cambridge (Prince William). The book was awarded “Art Book of 2017” by Amazon and has already sold out a second print run. All Yarrow’s royalties from the book continue to be donated to Tusk, the leading British NGO that focuses on animal conservation in Africa.
Philanthropy and conservation are central to David Yarrow’s passion to document the animal and human world in a fresh and creative way. In 2017, charitable donations from the sale of David’s images exceeded $1.2 million, with four of David’s pieces raising $186,000 in just a few minutes at the Tusk Gala dinner in New York City in April 2017. In 2018 Yarrow’s work raised over $2 million, with $311,000 being raised on one night in October 2018 in collaboration with Tag Heuer and Cara Delevingne towards the Cara Delevingne Foundation.
Yarrow’s position in the industry has been rewarded with a wide range of advisory and ambassadorial roles. In conservation, he is an ambassador for WildArk and on the advisory board of Tusk and an ambassador for the Kevin Richardson Foundation. In 2017 Land Rover also appointed David as a global ambassador and creative partner. He is the European ambassador for Nikon and has recently been integral to the company’s most anticipated Camera release of the last decade.. In December 2017 he shot LVMH’s latest “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign with Cara Delevingne which can be seen in airports around the world. In January 2019 David was appointed as a global ambassador for UBS.
